Gluten-free Diet for Gluten Sensitivity

Glutens are two grain proteins – glutenin and gliadin enmeshed in starches – that cause a wide spectrum of clinical disorders in some individuals. One simple form is wheat intolerance. At the other end of the spectrum is the severe form of gluten-sensitive enteropathy (GSE) called celiac disease. In Part Three of this series, I include a very long list of celiac disease-associated conditions to define the scope of clinical problems associated with gluten proteins. I begin this three part series about gluten sensitivity by first summarizing my experience with gluten-related clinical problems:

1. The frequency of problems caused by wheat, rye, oats, and barley is increasing among people with chronic health issues.
2. Nearly all my patients with gluten-related symptoms ate bread and other gluten foods freely and without symptoms before they developed gluten sensitivity.
3. Gluten intolerance developed when the bowel became inflamed and “leaky,” leading to entry into the blood of undigested gluten proteins.
4. Gluten-free diet only partially improved health.
5. Gluten-sensitive individuals regained their health only after bowel-liver detox was achieved and other oxygen-related issues—mold allergy, mold toxins, thyroid-adrenal weakness, hormonal imbalance, anger, and deep disappointments that caused the leaky gut state—were addressed.
6. The recovery in some cases with severe stress, mold toxicity, and instability of the autonomic nervous system, and continuing stress was sometimes delayed or incomplete or both.
7. Complete elimination of gluten grains was usually helpful in the short-term but was necessary in the long run only for a small number patients.

Dr. Ali’s Leaky Gut Protocol

From the above summary, many readers with puzzling chronic health disorders might ask: should I try a gluten-free diet trial? My answer: absolutely yes. I suggest that such readers consider a six-week trial of Dr. Ali’s Leaky Bowel (DALB) Protocol, which includes gluten-free diet trial (described below) as well as elimination of dairy (except yogurt), and sugar. I also prescribe castor oil rubs and Nystatin to reduce the population of fermenting microbes. Nystatin, of course, requires a physician’s prescription. Fortunately, more and more doctors are willing to support this request from patients. The less effective alternatives to Nystatin are echinacea, astragalus, burdock root, goldenseal, pau d’arco, and oregano.

A Valuable Suggestion

I recommend that readers first consider all elements of Dr. Ali’s Leaky Gut Trial described in Part Two. Once clinical improvement is achieved with all elements combined, then one can eliminate some aspects to narrow down the negative effects of gluten proteins. If that is not possible, I suggest readers first conduct a four-week gluten-sugar-dairy-free trial. Trials limited to gluten-free diet sometimes are not as revealing.

The Oxygen (Dysox) Model of Gluten Sensitivity

Readers will note that my oxygen view of gluten sensitivity—and celiac disease, by extension—is radically different from other prevailing theories of the disorders. In past publications I marshaled evidence for the central—and fundamental—roles of oxygen-related factors in the cause of the leaky gut state. My colleagues at the Institute of Integrative Medicine and I have also published a series of clinical outcome studies in which we documented the role of bowel derangements caused by dysox (dysfunctional oxygen homeostasis) and healing with oxystatic therapies. This, in essence, is the Oxygen Model of Gluten Sensitivity.

Oxygen is the organizing principle of human biology and governs the aging process. I began my book Oxygen and Aging (2000) with these words and then I began a series of articles in which I marshaled evidence for the unifying oxygen model of disease. Specifically I presented oxygen models of inflammation, pain, liver injury, asthma, allergy, colitis, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, cancer, and other disorders. This article outlining the Oxygen Model of Gluten Sensitivity is an extension of that work.

Gluten-free Diet

Gluten-sensitive persons need to avoid completely the following grains, in any form, for a period of at least six weeks to assess the effects of such elimination on their health:

1. Wheat
2. Rye
3. Oat
4. Barley

Other grains such as amaranth, buckwheat, quinoa, milo, teff, rice and corn contain small amounts of “bound gluten” that, in general, do not cause food incompatibility reactions in gluten-sensitive persons.

Spelt and Kumat are two types of ancient wheats that appear to be genetically different from the common variety of wheat. Many gluten-sensitive individuals can tolerate these grains well, especially when consumed sparingly. Both varieties are usually grown without pesticides. Spelt has a strong hull that protects its kernel. Teff, an Ethiopian staple, is a highly nutritious grain that contains more than ten times as much calcium as wheat and barley.

Suggestions for Snacks

Sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, melon seeds, watermelon seeds, soy nuts (actually a grain), cashew nuts, macadamia nuts, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, chestnuts, pecans, and litchi nuts. Peanuts and walnuts are common causes of allergic reactions and should be eaten infrequently. For additional information, please read chapter 8 of The Butterfly and Life Span Nutrition (1992).

Healing Seminar 1 – Introduction
Life is growing and growing is learning. In his course, he offers simple and low-cost natural remedies to preserve health and reverse chronic disease.

Healing Seminar 2 – Cellular Fermentation Forms the Foundation of Disease
Professor Ali defines disease in two ways: (1) disease is a state of separation from one’s nature; and (2) disease is evolution in reverse. In this second of 8 seminars of “Dr. Ali’s Course on Healing,” he explains what he means by evolution in reverse.

Healing Seminar 3 – Oxygen Model of Inflammation
Professor Majid Ali recognizes and describes two modes of inflammation: (1) healing physiologic inflammation and (2) disease-causing pathologic inflammation. He explains how no healing is possible without inflammation and how there is no disease in which inflammation does not play a crucial role.

Healing Seminar 4 – Breakfast Shake
In this 45-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. presents his own breakfast taken four to five days a week. It consists of organic 12 ounces of vegetable juice and water, two tablespoons each of a protein powder and freshly ground flaxseed, one-and-half tablespoon of lecithin, and 12 ounces of water.

Healing Seminar 5 – Top Seven Natural Remedies
Professor Ali describes his top seven natural healing remedies as follows: (1) Limbic Breathing ; (2) Dr. Ali’s Breakfast; (3) Exercise; (4) Bowel-Liver Detox; (5) Castor Oil Rub Therapies; (6) Peroxide Oxygen Therapies; and (7) Ethical-Spiritual-Energy healing. He found these therapies to be safe and highly effective for all chronic disorders.

Healing Seminar 6 Natural Anti-inflammatory Remedies
In this 45-minute video seminar, Professor Majid Ali, M.D. presents his choices of most effective natural remedies for various inflammatory disease and how most people can avoid drugs for diseases, such as asthma, eczema, acne, psoriasis, arthritis, trigger points, fibromyalgia, lupus, interstitial cystitis, polymyalgia, sarcoidosis, Crohn’s colitis, ulcerative colitis, and others.

Healing Seminar 7 – Bowel Detox –
In this DVD video seminar, Prof. Ali describes his guidelines for gentle daily bowel detox and colon cleanse. He explains the advantages of this approach over intense one-week to 3-week programs which, notwithstanding their temporary benefits, often create adverse effects programs bowel.

Healing Seminar 8 – Liver Detox
In this DVD video seminar, Prof. Ali describes his guidelines for gentle daily liver detox. He explains the advantages of this approach over intense one-week to 3-week programs which, notwithstanding their temporary benefits, often create adverse effects. The guardian angel of the liver is the bowel. Please view Dr. Ali’s Bowel Video Detox Seminar for a deeper understanding of this subject.

Healing Seminar 9 – Oxygen Model of Health and Disease
Professor Majid Ali presents his Oxygen Mode of Health and Disease and Oxygen Model of Disease. He speaks about his journey of a surgeon-turned-pathologist-turned-immunologist-turned-nutritionist-turned-ecologist-turned-“energy physician.” His unifying oxygen models are based on his evolutionary perspective of health, disease, and healing.

Healing Seminar 10 – Acid-Alkali Balance
Professor Majid Ali explains the importance of acid-alkali balance in health preservation and the reversal of chronic disease. In his evolutionary perspective, he recognizes oxygen as the ultimate regulator of this balance. He cautions against too much reliance on the values of pH (acidity indicator) in blood, urine, and saliva samples, since these samples reflect the body’s responses to threats to the balance.

Healing Seminar 11 – Oxidant – Antioxidant Regulation
Professor Majid Ali presents the scientific facts of oxidant-antioxidant regulation, beginning with definitions of terms and simple explanation of natural processes called oxidation (loss of electron energy) and reduction (gain of electron energy) with simple analogies. Next he shows how oxygen regulates oxidant-oxidates reactions and why oxidant therapies are more important than antioxidant therapies.
